South Zone dove hunters will be allowed to hunt one week longer in January if a proposal is approved by the Parks and Wildlife Commission.

The proposal calls for moving one week from the end of the first season segment in November (Nov. 3-9) and putting it in January (Jan. 14-20). That means the South Zone dove seasons would run from Sept. 20-Nov. 2 and again from Dec. 26-Jan. 20. The daily limit would be 12, not to include more than two white-tipped doves.

The proposed season in the North Zone is Sept. 1-Oct. 30 with a 15-bird limit. The Central Zone seasons would be Sept. 1-Oct. 30 and Dec. 26-Jan. 4 with a 12-bird limit.

The season for the Special South Texas Whitewing Zone would continue to be the first two Saturdays and Sundays in September.

The department also has proposed the early teal-only season for Sept. 13-28 if a 16-day season is granted by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service or a Sept. 20-28 season under a nine-day season framework. The daily bag limit is four.

Suggested duck hunting seasons also presented to the commission simply reflect calendar adjustments from last year. Those seasons are expected to be refined for public comment in late July or early August.

Proposed sandhill crane seasons are: Zone A — Nov. 8-Feb. 8; Zone B — Nov. 28-Feb. 8; Zone C — Dec. 20-Jan. 25. The daily limit would be three in Zones A and B and two in Zone C.

Anyone wishing to comment on the proposed seasons may do so before June 26 online at this link.
